RapidEye Satellite Sensor (5m)
RapidEye satellite sensor was successfully launched from the DNEPR-1 Rocket on August 29th, 2008 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. RapidEye built by MacDonald Dettwiler, Ltd. (MDA) will offer image users a data source containing an unrivaled combination of large-area coverage, frequent revisit intervals, high resolution and multispectral capabilities.
The RapidEye constellation of five satellites stands apart from other providers of satellite based geospatial information in their unique ability to acquire high resolution, large-area image data on a daily basis.
RapidEye's imaging capabilities can be applied to a host of industries, including agriculture, forestry, oil and gas exploration, power and engineering and construction, governments, cartography and mining.
The RapidEye system collects an unprecedented 4 million square kilometers of data per day at 6.5 meter nominal ground resolution. Each satellite measures less than one cubic meter and weighs 150 kg (bus + payload), and has been designed for at least a seven-year mission life. All five satellites are equipped with identical sensors and are located in the same orbital plane. BlackBridge satellites include the Red-Edge band, which is sensitive to changes in chlorophyll content.
